Thrifting in Salt Lake City

Hat from Target, Blouse by F21, Skirt by Asos, Boots by Miss Mooz via Nordstrom

After living in Utah for a few years, I've come to discover my two favorite vintage stores: Misc and Decades. I stopped at Decades over the weekend and found a beautiful 50s era cream coat, an early 60s era green dress, and a plaid dress that can only be described as the 70s approach to the Victorian era. The plaid dress will need a bit of work, but a good vintage piece is impossible to pass up, at least for me. It feels like fate: something that someone once cherished enough to keep for a long time, until eventually it found its way into a shop, and then into my hands. It's a little bit of history, a little bit of love.
